Watched a couple of movies recently that touched on the subject of “doomsday”. But, not as we used to hear about it. Instead of a great battle of armies and armed “forces”, they suggeseted that some kind of interference with the “time-space continuum” could bring “antimatter” in touch with “matter” and cause the universe itself to cease to exist.
Not exactly sure what the supposed issue is with these two forms of “matter” but they connect it somehow with AlbertEinsteins theories. The whole idea that the universe can somehow be caused to “dissolve” in a moment makes for great science fiction. Is there a “parallel universe” that “mirrors” our own with worlds and even people that are the “alternate” of ourselves and never the “twain shall meet” or else…?
These, to me, seem to be just more of the fallout that comes from theÂ obsession in modernÂ science to divorce itself from any referenceÂ or implications to the existence and activity of a Creator. The universe is sustained by Someone let’s not kid ourselves. But, try to convince these new “intellectuals and scientists” these days and you may get laughed at, snubbed or worse.
Â Even though there is a concerted effort going on to “purify” science of all “religious” notions, in the end, the fact that the Creator keeps the “universe” going will remain unchanged no matter what. This Creator is not a “force” or a collection of physical laws, but a person with the ability to do as He pleases with “our” universe.
God tell’s us in the Bible about the last great battle, Armageddon, which is to preceed the final judgement day. But, we don’t often hear about another event that is associated with these. The end of this present “universe” and God’s creation of a “new heavens and earth”. So i wonder what that will mean in terms of physics and biology. To me the references suggest that all the controls placed on “particles and energy” will be removed and matter will be allowed to dissociate instantly like a giant atom bomb and all remaining forms of life as we know it will dissolve with it. The Bible uses words like, “fervent heat” and “the heavens will roll up like a scroll” to describe this great event. Will this be the “trumpet of God” that will sound to mark the end of “time”?
God will do this, not to be mean or cruel, but to replace this universe with a new one that will be much more wonderful then this one. If we are with Him, we will be with Him and those of us that aren’t, well. The Creator came to us as Jesus to give us that opportunity to be saved from that final judgement and it’s verdict and the punishment for our sins. The Bible is all about Jesus coming to save us so each of us can enjoy sharing this new and much more wonderful universe. He said, “I go to prepare a place for you…”
